Our thoughts and prayers go out to the women,* girls,* and marginalized communities who have been deeply impacted by the war being waged on Ukraine.
As the situation in Ukraine intensifies, it draws attention to its consequences on the lives and livelihoods of Ukraine’s women* and girls.* We are committed to supporting Ukraine’s people, especially its women* and girls,* at this time of greatest need. We stand in solidarity with our sister organizations, YWCA of Ukraine, World YWCA, and YWCA World Service Council, and are committed to ensuring that their needs are supported as they respond to evacuations, relocation, and humanitarian needs of women,* girls,* and marginalized communities who often bear the brunt of armed conflict.
We hope that you will join us in meeting critical needs during this difficult time by making a donation to our YWCA Emergency Fund for Ukraine, of which all proceeds will go to YWCA of Ukraine.
*Our use of “girls” and “women” is inclusive of all cis and trans women, non-binary, gender non-conforming, gender queer, and any female-identified folks.
